A cracking new gallery has opened in Flinders run by highly regarded art writers, curators and gallerists, Susan McCulloch and Emily McCulloch Childs. The big, bright and architectural space replaces the McCullochs home gallery Whistlewood as their exhibition venue.
Upon stepping through the doors of Antipodes Bookshop & Gallery you will feel the cosy calm wash over you. A sanctuary for book lovers, Antipodes’ purpose is to find and champion stories – those that enrich our lives, those that surprise and those that delight. There are other treasures to discover at Antipodes, too: beautiful Australian craft, art and jewellery and carefully curated exhibitions. We love Antipodes because of its serendipitous nature; it’s a place to experience wonderful encounters and a refuge from the outside world. As Picasso once said ‘some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun’ - it doesn’t matter which one you are, you’ll find the right spot at Antipodes.
The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery is a catchment point for much of this creative expression, and a place where people gather to celebrate works from local, national and international artists, as well as take part in some other fun activities.
